Let’s Chat – Real Housewives of Miami and Orange County

Two for Two Tonight

It is the second part of the three part Orange County Reunion.  This is the reunion where Tamra Barney Judge tries to reinvent herself into less of a beeyoch.  So far most of the reunion has been bickering between Lydia and Heather.  What a cute little kitten fight that was mildly entertaining but didn’t make my blood pressure rise.  Good job ladies.  I may be the only fan of Heather’s acting.  I loved her show -“That’s Life” that aired 2000-2002. She was fabulous in it, and it’s a shame it didn’t last more than a couple seasons.  I always have a feeling that Heather is playing a role on Real Housewives.  I wish she’d get better writers.

To their right on the reunion couch is Gretchen Rossie almost Slimy with her sour puss face.  No one likes Gretchen anymore.  Poor, poor misunderstood Gretchen.   She’s aligned herself with the most vile and hateful man on reality TV – Slade Slimy – yet seems to want to pretend she’s somehow a victim.

Lucky for Gretchen, Vicki and Tamra don’t know when to stop.    They dug up the old cheating allegations, and again Vicki is screaming about things that were none of her business years ago, and no one cares about any longer.   According to Vicki,  Gretchen’s refusal to admit that she cheated on fiancee Jeff has made Vicki and Tamra look like fools for continuing to insist that Gretchen cheated.  Got that – it’s all Gretchen’s fault that Vicki and Tamra attacking Gretchen like jackals has made them look like fools.  Ah these ladies wear me out.

So tonight is another bickerfest with Tamra trying to stay likable enough that people tune in for her wedding.  I think Briana and Brooks may steal the show though.  It’s too bad.  Briana used to be one of my favorites, but now I just worry for her.


I haven’t gotten into Miami yet – but I likely will as the season progresses.  I just have a seething dislike for Joanna Krupta and her fakeness that makes it hard for me to enjoy the show.

  3. Powell says:

    Hey everyone. OC part deux is tonight? It rolled around fast didn’t it? 🙂

  4. Powell says:

    Posting this again.
    Kim Z. Bierman is pregnant w/twins. Do you think she’ll be like Heather Dubrow & say there’s not enough bedrooms in the new house for twins? 🙂

    • lulu says:

      Aww twins!!! That’s funny and cute. I wonder if they are boys ;).

    • Amalfi says:

      Holy crap. Hahahah… I am happy for her and her family. Good for her. Of all the thoroughly plastic people on these shows, her family relationships seem the most genuine and loving.

      • Laineylainey says:

        Her psychic said she was to have another girl,…right?

      • Powell says:

        I’m happy for Kim too. I know she wants another girl but I so want to see her w/more boys. I bet she will be closed for business after these babies.

  5. Amalfi says:

    Yep. Still can’t stand Vicki.

  6. lulu says:

    Vicki and Tamra keep insisting that Gretch owns up to “cheating.”. But come on did she really have a “relationship” with him? Let’s get serious here she was only eye candy to him. She was hoping to become a kept women. The irony is the role reversal since Slade is no the kept man.

  7. Nancy says:

    I’m still not watching your wedding Tamra.

  8. cusi77 says:

    It is true that some time Gretchen mentioned to have some credentials as a psychologist or… I misunderstood? It was one time she was talking to Lynne Curtin’s (sp) daughter…

  9. Powell says:

    Thank you Tamra for admitting you’ve always had bad hair on the show.

  10. Kat From Ohio says:

    enjoying this reunion. also miami. i started graduate school teacher training today. in a week i will be in front of my own class of freshman comp students so i’m freaked OUT

  11. Powell says:

    She never took the Rolls? Didn’t we see her drive it on another day after he got it?

  12. cusi77 says:

    Not to be negative, but I always admired Heather’s taste in clothes and hair… she looks like wearing a dress to stay in home and her hair is not so well styled for this Reunion.

    • Powell says:

      Heather’s hair always looks nice. I like her style most of the time. There are misses. I don’t particularly care for any of the ladies dresses. I like all of the colors though. Gretchen’s dress is the worse. She needs to fire her stylist or find a stylist.

    • cusi77 says:

      Where is our Michelle In NY to give us a critique in these women fashion? Gretchen (IMO) looks very 1979!

      • Powell says:

        Haha. I miss Michelle.

      • Kat From Ohio says:

        gretchen is a mess. this group is usually one of the worst dressed casts, but i think everyone looks nice for the most part. heather is probably a bit conservative, but i’ll take that over gaudy (christmas pageant dresses!!!!!)

  13. Powell says:

    Now Gretch and emails. Sheeessh.

  14. Nancy says:

    I wouldn’t be friends with any of these women.

  15. cusi77 says:

    Who will be watching Nene’s wedding?

  16. lulu says:

    Well at least gretchen is wearing green it suits her. Its sad that she is that obsessed with tamr that she saves ALL written correspondance!??!?

  17. lulu says:

    Lol thank you Andy for the clarification 😉

  18. lulu says:

    And the b#tch comes out of Tamra.

  19. OMG! Gretchen & the “evidence,” she certainly came prepared!

    • Powell says:


    • Laineylainey says:

      I am glad she brought that stuff, because without it she would look even crazier. I am starting to feel sorry for her. I can’t believe I just wrote that!

      • Nancy says:

        Me too.

        • cusi77 says:

          You can put a neighbor to leave that message on your phone… that message can be anyone. Not a real evidence. An Email, yes!

          • Nancy says:

            I don’t like a gang-up.

            • Powell says:

              I don’t like a gang up either but Gretchen just lies for no reason. Why couldn’t she tell Tamra the truth that she didn’t want to be at the wedding dress shopping because Alexis would be there, even though Gretchen really has no valid reason for not liking Alexis anylonger.

  20. Powell says:

    Gretchen is a L I A R.

    • cusi77 says:

      I thought they were ganging on her… She is a scary liar, the one that does not care she has been caught.

  21. lulu says:

    Gretchen makes wacky jacky look sane!!!!! Omg that is psychotic!!!!

  22. cusi77 says:

    Gretchen is a liar? I am serious… This is the first Season I’ve watched.

    • Powell says:

      Boy oh boy she’s been lying her patootie off this season. You heard her say to Heather “that’s the way I see it”. She played her email from Malibu C from a yr ago & everyone heard the lady say “looking for availability”, Gretchen heard it as a bonified offer & Saud to Tamra “I gave up a part for you”. How can she give up a part that wasn’t offered?

  23. lulu says:

    You go Heather!!! Call her @ss out 😉

  24. Powell says:

    Convenient friends. Yup. So true Alexis. That’s Gretchen.

  25. boston02127 says:

    Does anyone have a valium?

  26. I don’t understand how Gretchen has forgiven Tamra for the comments a/b Jeff but still calls out Vicki for the saying the same things

  27. chismosa says:

    Kind of odd description for Miami on my guide : Lisa has problems with the property she’s buying.

    Star island??? I thought she and Lenny already bought it ???? That was a whole thing last season with Lea.

    • They bought the house & wanted to tear it down bc it was in such disrepair. They went through months of legal drama trying to get the permits. A group tried to have it declared a historical home. I think there was also some kind of drama with the family that owned it before, seems like I saw it on Investigation Discovery.

      • Powell says:

        HH its been all over tv.

      • chismosa says:

        Thanks hydrangea 🌸🌸🌹🌹

        I know that was the house Lea had her son’s birthday party at last year and they said the kids could do whatever they wanted to it since they were gutting it or something –

        • chismosa says:

          Correction, I meant I know star island is where lea had that party last year. Not at Lisa’s new house.

  28. Powell says:

    Lulu that’s the show. Modern Dads. I hope you & Mr. Lulu can watch. 🙂

  29. BB says:

    Alright, Lydia. “I know how to do laundry, but I don’t have to, so why would I?” At least she’s honest about it.

  30. Powell says:

    Lydia. “I know how to do laundry. I don’t have to. Why would I”. LOL. I’m w/you Lydia. The first opp I can get someone to do my laundry I definitely will. Except for my undergarments. I don’t want a maid/cleaning woman touching my undergarments. 🙂

  31. lulu says:

    The governor is a acting up. *sigh* would be nice to be able to sit/lay down for more than ten minutes.

  32. Nancy says:

    You go Alexis!

  33. Powell says:

    Everything confuses Gretchen cause she’s an idiot Alexis.

  34. Gretchen is so hypocritical! Alexis just said the same thing that Gretchen said ab Tamra & Eddie’s engagement.

  35. Nancy says:

    There goes dinner.

  36. BB says:

    My dogs are howling at the tv right now!

  37. boston02127 says:

    I’d rather kiss me my dogs ass than listen to Gretchen’s baby voice.

  38. boston02127 says:

    Gretchen’s really crying cuz she’s looking back at the footage and thinking look who I’m stuck with.

  39. Powell says:

    Gretch you cant sing. You suck. They autotuned the hell out of that song to get it to sound good. The autotuned does sound good.

  40. Nancy says:


  41. boston02127 says:

    Stop Gretchen……you’re gonna split your tight upper lip!!!!

  42. boston02127 says:

    Does anyone see tears??? Is it my TV? I don’t see one.

    • Powell says:

      Nope. Nada. Nill.

      • BB says:

        And where the heck does Gretchen get off crying and boo-hooing about Alexis not being there at her engagement party after the way she treated her? She’s kidding – right? She’s the one who threw away that friendship, not the other way around. She’s definitely confused about things.

        • Powell says:

          She trampled all over Alexis. I hope Alexis deleted Gretchen out of her iPhone. 🙂

        • djprincessc says:

          Did you see Alexis look of SHOCK when Gretchen said that. Alexis tears were real, Gretchen is all show.

  43. TexasTart says:

    Enough of this screaming & boo hoo match 🙄

  44. TexasTart says:

    Welcome to MIAMI! 😀

  45. boston02127 says:

    Gretchen’s dress looks like she was putting it on and got one arm in then had a bright idea to wrap the other arm of the dress around her neck.

  46. TexasTart says:

    NMD, I think everyone has a seething dislike for Joanna Krupa. Have you heard her tagline?!

  47. Powell says:

    I thought you were lying before. Your really lying Gretchen. How can you say that to Alexis. Tonight her gripe w/Alexis is she’s fake on tv. That’s her valid reason for breaking off her “friendship” w/Alexis. Gretch was never Alexis’ friend. She was.just a “convenient friend” like Alexis said because she wasn’t friends w/the cool girl Tamra.

  48. chismosa says:

    Whoa. “My exhusband wants me here ”

    Speaks volumes
    Jill had a nip slip. Gross!
    She’s such a loony! Starts singing that’s what friends are for
    What meds is she on!?!??

    Former Bravo star Kelly Bensimon’s yard sale — in the parking lot of Hamptons hot spot Georgica on Saturday afternoon — offered everything from beds handmade in Italy and jewelry from her collection, to stuffed animals, American flags, pillows, lamps, an image of her Playboy cover and “Real Housewives of New York” bric-à-brac. We saw her former cast mate Jill Zarin stopping by to browse. (In true reality-TV star mode, Zarin was seen bending over to inspect some items, then popping back up and having a very public nipple slip. Quick-witted Bensimon reached over to help hike up Zaran’s shirt, then began singing humorously, “That’s what friends are for.”) Amid Bensimon’s treasure culled from her former Hamptons mansion on Further Lane, Zarin found a can of tennis balls and opened them to discover one was signed by Serena Williams. She told Kelly not to sell them. Former “The View” host Joy Behar was given a special VIP discount. “These are the same lampshades as the ones I just bought!” Behar said while looking at lighting. “They’re yours. No charge,” Bensimon offered. The one-off tag sale diva told us the stuff being offered was “from everywhere. East Hampton, New York. I had this huge house to put things in, and now I have to downsize. I was going to move to Florida in January, and that’s why I was like, ‘OK, we’re good.’ And then we decided to stay in New York and our apartment is smaller than this big house. My ex-husband wants me here so we’re gonna stay [in the area].” Bensimon, who’s living in Manhattan with her two daughters, reportedly sold her Hamptons house for just over $5.5 million after originally seeking $12 million. She reportedly said of the sell-off, “I can’t afford the lifestyle I did when I was married . . . I’m a working single mother.” She was married to fotog Gilles Bensimon.

    • Powell says:


      • chismosa says:

        Powell I don’t believe for one second Gilles would allow his girls out of state with KooKoo …..

        Once they’re tucked away nicely at college – then he’ll let KooKoo go wherever she wants

    • Rebecca says:

      So was Elle MacPherson (married to Gilles Bensimon). How come she has no problem supporting her family?

      • chismosa says:

        Elle? I think Elle does actual work. Not here, maybe out of state?
        Now she’s married to a billionaire

        I think it’s been ages since Kelly’s had work on any modeling shows, etc

  49. JumpTheShark says:

    It’s over!!! IMO, 1. Don’t wear fuchsia lipstick w/ fake orange “tan”. 2. Gretchen is beginning to look like Joan Rivers…

  50. boston02127 says:

    If anyone is interested, there is a show on TLC called The Man With The 132 lb Scrotum. And OMG, he puts his dinner plate on it (them) to eat. Nice.

    What’s next in the reality world.

  51. TexasTart says:

    Oh, Miami or LA…I can’t decide….
    The torture this woman must endure 😉

  52. TexasTart says:

    Safe to say that is the first run Marysol has had in……oh a loooong time, lol.

  53. Nancy says:

    Do we know how her mother is doing?

  54. TexasTart says:

    Say what you want about Adriana, but at least she was filmed in bed without makeup. And she looks good without makeup!

  55. TexasTart says:

    Oh my, the problems Alexia has with that closet. 🙄 I didn’t even have to hire a professional to think to throw out all the shoe boxes, lol

  56. Powell says:

    157 responses. Y’all sure do talk a lot. 😉

  57. TexasTart says:

    Taking me forever to post on the phone tonight, but looks like I don’t have much to keep up the pace with here, hehe.

    So Adriana has some grand and fairly amusing ideas for her wedding, huh.

  58. Nancy says:

    Lisa needs to start volunteering somewhere.

  59. TexasTart says:

    LOL! Adriana picked Marysol and Alexia as bridesmaids because they are fun and they won’t stab her in the back while going down the aisle. 😆

  60. Nancy says:

    Did Lea just say that? OMG

  61. TexasTart says:

    Hoanna is so full of sh*t.

  62. Powell says:

    Lea was equally successful as Roy when she married him. Only in Lea’s dreams. Roy was highly successful way before she met him.

  63. TexasTart says:

    Lisa makes such honest and real observations at times, it’s a wonder all the women don’t hate her, lol.

  64. Nancy says:

    But Lea knew she was married!! Am I missing something?

  65. TexasTart says:

    Adrianna “when Lea gets angry, somebody gets punished”. Somehow I believe that.

    • Nancy says:

      I’m not sure who’s side I’m on.

    • Powell says:

      I believe that too but this one is all Adriana. First age said marriage license, then Lea said, marriage license Nov 4th, married Dec 4th & finally Adriana said yes but she didn’t feel married, then Adriana said they just got a marriage license. Which is it Adriana? And then she turns it around on Lea, that Lea had the story written up in the papers to hurt her. It’s Fredric’s fault that she lied and didn’t say they were married, now it’s Lea’s fault. Adriana is l y I n g.

      • Nancy says:

        No good dead goes unpunished.

      • NJBev says:

        I have never really cared for Adriana. I rmbr reading somewhere
        last year that most of the girls didn’t like her because she blamed them for
        being boring the 1st season and that’s why they (Miami) did not get picked
        up for a second season(initially) by Bravo-

        there is something so “desperate” about Adriana, and I hate her
        stupid hair. Do something with your hair woman!! you look stupid

    • chismosa says:



  66. Nancy says:

    Lea’s living room looks great.

  67. Powell says:

    Damn. Adriana gave me whiplash w/that lie.

  68. TexasTart says:

    Outside of the Lea & Adriana summit at the end and to be continued, that was a snoozer….and it’s rare I feel that way about RH shows. Where are you chismosa?! Maybe you watch later.

    • Powell says:

      Awww. Bo has a 1yr old sis Sunny. They’re both so cute. Bo wrote a book right? You know what I mean. Bush I Millie & Clinton’s Sox have books.

    • chismosa says:

      I heard someone say the other day that they named the 1st one Bo as in B.arack O.bama. How conceited !

      And id be more impressed if it was an elderly shelter dog

      • Dixie says:

        While this is nice and sweet news, it really bugs me that our media has focused more on this new puppy than the fact Christians are being murdered in Egypt and nuns are being held as prisoners of war. Priorities, media!

  69. Laineylainey says:

    “All of the sudden” another Gretchenism. She said it at least twice.

  70. Amalfi says:

    I totally believe Gretchen when she said that Tamra talked shit about Alexis. She plays all sides.

    Geez Tamra is such a gross cow.

  71. NJBev says:

    Gretchen tries to hard to sound

  72. Amalfi says:

    I feel like Tamra thinks she can be the world biggest X)!@ as long as she “owns” it.

    What a delusional haywired freak. Run Eddie.

  73. Amalfi says:

    Watching Tamra and Vicki’s be Tweedledee and Tweedledum backing each other’s lies…. hahaha

  74. NJBev says:

    I hate to say it, but I do feel bad for Gretchen.
    Could you imagine thinking that Tamra was
    your friend? And now she ends up looking like
    a fool for believing her.
    She must be profoundly hurt……………………

    • NJBev says:

      I think she was scared of Tamra…………….

      • Amalfi says:

        I think so too. Gretchen was Lindsay Lohan to Tamra’s Regina George. Gretchen was greedy to be a popular girl — and Alexis was just that purple pantsuit girl she could toss aside.

        lol… too obscure a reference?

        • Rebecca says:

          yeah… Gretchen is more like the teenage lover that Tamara would coerce to kill her husband.

          • Amalfi says:

            Gretchen Christine Beaute’s new fragrance line is called ‘Scent of Desperation’. I predict it will be big with all the wannabe crowd.

      • princesspindy says:

        I wish I had been at that party last night, that person would have had to go home and had a whole bottle of wine after I was thru with them!!

    • Rebecca says:

      She was as stupid as they come for making a deal with the devil.

    • Laineylainey says:

      No doubt…Just as Alexis was hurt by Gretchen.

  75. Amalfi says:

    I wish Alexis would keep her hair short. I saw on a WWHL after the reunion was filmed where she put back in those extensions. Noooooooo.

    I like less flashy Alexis…though this reunion dress and whatever she wore to Tamra’s wedding shows her regressing. http://www.usmagazine.com/uploads/assets/article_photos/real-housewives-oc-467.jpg

    • Nancy says:

      Her implants look ridiculous. They are way too big for her body.

    • Rebecca says:

      My only complaint about her reunion look is that she’s wearing too much jewelry. Lose the necklace. This is not a Dynasty taping.

  76. Amalfi says:

    Also, I like Lydia — and sure, that baby voice and the big eyes and 12 yr old body works for her – so that’s great. But those flower wreaths and headbands. Dang girl. Lose those.

  77. Amalfi says:

    Gretchen just called Alexis FAKE? What a beyotch.

    • Amalfi says:

      So seeing them gang up on her is not nice, but OH SO well deserved.
      This reunion is confusing me as they all disgust me and I cannot pick a side.

  78. Rebecca says:

    AGAIN – she says “sonethin”


  79. Rebecca says:

    At least she admitted that Slade did not buy her a ring.

  80. Rebecca says:

    Gretchen, Luann, and Melissa should start a girl group – The Tone Deafs

  81. Rebecca says:

    Dry cry!!!!!!!

  82. Rebecca says:

    Hello. My name is Rebecca, and I enjoy watching the Real Housewives of Miami.

  83. Vegas Chick says:

    Wow! I haven’t laughed this hard in awhile. Waterworks Gretchen…. sniff, sniff, wail, wail, lol. She couldn’t believe that everyone thought it was a set up. Why? Because she’s a fake, and fakes can’t fathom authentic. In reality, she’s balling her eyes out because Tamara got the spinoff. Absolutely amazing how the tears dried up when Alexis opened her mouth. #d’uh

  84. Rebecca says:

    100% on the Hochsteins’ side. Tear down that rundown piece of crap.

  85. Rebecca says:

    Oh Lea, you lie more than you tell the truth. Even Lisa sees right through you.

  86. Mrs Peabody says:

    where are Gretchen’s tears when she is crying? Even after she’s done her eyes don’t look like they were crying. At least Alexis was really crying. Oh Gretchen Gretchen Gretchen what a fake you are.

    • djprincessc says:

      I said EXACTLY the same thing Mrs. Peabody!!! Alexis was legitimately crying!!

    • Amalfi says:

      Gretchen is totally fake in terms of no tears and exaggerating, but there was a hint of real emotional distress of some sort, though she milked it for all it was worth.

      Tamra is 100 times worse because you can hear that fake lilt in her voice that little children use when they are fake crying and lying about getting hurt to deflect punishment. She is a MASSIVE jerk. And that is the nicest 4 letter word I can write about her.

  87. Orson says:

    Dear Gretchen,
    Your crying would be more convincing if you conceal a slice of raw onion in your hankie. It’s a trick that not very good actor use. Oh, and see a speech therapist. “M” is a very useful letter. You should learn to use it.
